神父講道 – 四旬期第二週 (週三) (2010年3月3日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 20:17-28
耶穌上耶路撒冷去的時候,暗暗把十二個門徒帶到一邊,在路上對他們說:「看,我們上耶路撒冷去,人子要被交於司祭和經師,他們要定他的死罪;並且要把他交給外邦人戲弄、鞭打、釘死;但第三天,他要復活。」
那時,載伯德兒子的母親,同自己的兒子前來,叩拜耶穌,請求他一件事。耶穌對她說:「你要什麼?」她回答說:「你叫我的這兩個兒子,在你王國內,一個坐在你的右邊,一個坐在你的左邊。」耶穌回答說:「你們不知道你們所求的是什麼,你們能飲我將要飲的爵嗎?」他們說:「我們能。」耶穌對他們說:「我的爵你們固然要飲;但坐在右邊或左邊,不是我可以給的,而是我父給誰預備了,就給誰。」那十個聽了,就惱怒他們兩兄弟。
耶穌叫過他們來說:「你們知道:外邦人有首長主宰他們,有大臣管轄他們。但在你們中卻不可這樣;誰若願意在你們中成為大的,就當作你們的僕役;誰若願意在你們中為首,就當作你們的奴僕。就如人子來不是受服侍,而是服侍人,並交出自己的生命,為大眾作贖價。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 20:17-28

17 And as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside, and on the way he said to them, 18 “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man will be delivered to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death, 19 and deliver him to the Gentiles to be mocked and scourged and crucified, and he will be raised on the third day.” 20 Then the mother of the sons of Zeb’edee came up to him, with her sons, and kneeling before him she asked him for something. 21 And he said to her, “What do you want?” She said to him, “Command that these two sons of mine may sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your kingdom.” 22 But Jesus answered, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am to drink?” They said to him, “We are able.” 23 He said to them, “You will drink my cup, but to sit at my right hand and at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father.” 24 And when the ten heard it, they were indignant at the two brothers. 25 But Jesus called them to him and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them. 26 It shall not be so among you; but whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever would be first among you must be your slave; 28 even as the Son of man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

瑪20:17-28 (其他經文──耶18:18-20    詠31)
耶穌上耶路撒冷去的時候,暗暗把十二個門徒帶到一邊,在路上對他們說:「看,我們上耶路撒冷去,人子要被交於司祭和經師,他們要定他的死罪;並且要把他交給外邦人戲弄、鞭打、釘死;但第三天,他要復活。」那時,載伯德兒子的母親,同自己的兒子前來,叩拜耶穌,請求他一件事。耶穌對她說:「你要什麼?」她回答說:「你叫我的這兩個兒子,在你王國內,一個坐在你的右邊,一個坐在你的左邊。」耶穌回答說:「你們不知道你們所求的是什麼,你們能飲我將要飲的爵嗎?」他們說:「我們能。」耶穌對他們說:「我的爵你們固然要飲;但坐在右邊或左邊,不是我可以給的,而是我父給誰預備了,就給誰。」那十個聽了,就惱怒他們兩兄弟。耶穌叫過他們來說:「你們知道:外邦人有首長主宰他們,有大臣管轄他們。但在你們中卻不可這樣;誰若願意在你們中成為大的,就當作你們的僕役;誰若願意在你們中為首,就當作你們的奴僕。就如人子來不是受服侍,而是服侍人,並交出自己的生命,為大眾作贖價。」

默 想

  • 耶穌完全反轉我們一向對僕役的意思。誰要做大的,就要成為僕役。
  • 即是說:做大的先決條件,是甘願自謙自卑,放下身段,如耶穌為門徒洗腳的姿態般,全心服務別人,不為什麼,只純粹為服務。
  • 作眾人的僕役,也在入一道窄門,也是一生的修練。跟耶穌也要學做僕役,因為這是耶穌的價值觀。
  • 跟隨耶穌這一套,可謂是不一樣的人生觀,行的路也不一樣,也是豐盛的路。

默主哥耶聖母訊息(2010年3月2日)

March 02, 2010

“Dear children, In this special time of your effort to be all the closer to my Son, to His suffering, but also to the love with which He bore it, I desire to tell you that I am with you. I will help you to triumph over errors and temptations with my grace. I will teach you love, love which wipes away all sins and makes you perfect, love which gives you the peace of my Son now and forever. Peace with you and in you, because I am the Queen of Peace. Thank you.”

親愛的孩子們:
當你們努力接近我的聖子、接近祂的苦難、接近祂所帶來的愛的時候,我願意告訴你們:我和你們在一起。
我會以我的恩寵幫助你們去克服錯誤、戰勝誘惑。
我教導你們去愛;因為愛能除去一切罪過,使你們達致完美的境界,同時永遠得到我聖子的平安。願平安與你們同在,並活存於你們心中,因為我是和平之后。多謝你們。
